somehow SLEEPY D got in this craze line up!

A FUNCTION OF FORMS features b&w photographs curated by Ken Miller for Gallery Target in Tokyo.

A limited quantity of A FUNCTION OF FORMS shirts will be available from July onward in select Uniqlo shops worldwide, as well as online at http://www.uniqlo.com/ and at the UT flagship store in Harajuku, Tokyo.

“A black and white image reduces photography to its simplest elements – shapes and shades. In the same way, a t-shirt is clothing in its simplest form. Thus, the pairing of these photos and these shirts seemed like a very nice function of forms.” – KM and GT

Bill Daniel presents an evening of lost and found music films:

lost music films 1965-87

film and photo tour

Film Tramp Bill Daniel is back in the van on tour with a new program of recently unearthed 16mm footage.

SONIC ORPHANS is a compilation reel of lost and found clips projected on 16mm; some silent, some that rock. They are all rare and strange celluloid gems, many have been seen by almost no one and have never seen the light of youtube. Most of this footage is truly orphaned film— abandoned, lost, found, and now presented raw without editing. The presentation includes a discussion of “orphan films” as they are called by archivists, and at some venues on tour, a one-night photo exhibit.

Featuring: The Beatles/Avengers/Huns/Boy Problems/Sonic Youth/Tennessee Ernie Ford/Butthole Surfers/Johnny Cash
